WOO - CRIME

TOGETHER WE CAN BEAT CRIME

WOO, working with Dyfed-Powys Police and other agencies, tries  to keep you well informed about any crime in your area,  highlighting issues that affect you and making it easy to report.

We try to explain how crime works, and how to protect yourself.

CRIMES ARE CHANGING!

The UK as a whole has seen many changes to the type and way that crime is committed, we are now seeing more knife crime, acid attacks, car-jacking, mugging style theft by youths riding on scooters,  car theft using advanced technology, Agricultural thefts, online frauds and scamming.

But there are many other crimnes that are happening right under our noses, abuse, forced labour, hate and race crimes, and driving whilst under influence or drink or drugs, and unfortunately even acts of terrorism. We must be contantly on the look-out, know how to spot the signs, and know how and to who to report them to.
